ProcedureHow to Add an Interface to an IPMP Group

  1. On the system with the IPMP group configuration, assume the Primary Administrator role or become superuser.

    The Primary Administrator role includes the Primary Administrator profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Add the interface to the IPMP group.

    # ifconfig interface group group-name

    The interface specified in interface becomes a member of IPMP group group-name.
